with the trade unions. so this represents now one full-year since we first approved the pla. and we had updates on upcoming trade packages to make sure that the unions are informed of work that is coming down the pipeline. sorry, wrong mic. as well as reports on the progress that webcor has made in working with the veterans organizations in the bay area and we'll have ted wang from webcor come up and speak to that in a few minutes. as well as the work as the unions have done with tech 21 and local schools. so there has been a lot of good progress made on that front and there continues to be no work shortage issues or other impediments to our project. and we had no reportable incidents in safety in the last month. in terms of trade packages as you know at the last board meeting or the october board meeting we awarded the substructure package. $120 million on that package and the slide says the bids are due january 10th. we do through the question from bidders process have requests to extend that bid date and we're evaluating those as we speak. so that is likely to be that -- that dat

confidentiality. and mr. kelly is correct that we did not appropriately notice the union. we have as a matter of practice, we have a lot of resignations throughout the year, and have not historically noticed the union. i did not know there was a requirement. my bad that we noticed the union, but certainly our attorney's opinion is that doesn't affect the fact that an adult teacher made an adult decision to resign. and there was no indication that -- and a -- in good faith based on the resignation, we hired another teacher and placed that teacher in that position the first of the month. i don't think she is in it yet, but has been fired to go into that job and has a contract to fill that position and that was done in good faith. i added a block that specifically states, do you want us to contact the union, yes or no? and then the last thing that i will submit to you is an email written by the teacher in support of the fact that it wasn't one day. written by the teacher to my staff and to a representative of the union, when says, "i would like to rescind my resignation, the date of this is the

the union and its members, we know what we have to do. what i would like to submit to the commission, what i would like to submit to the commission are documents and then walk right through them, they're important documents, we think they're self-explanatory, they don't need to be characterized by the union but we think those who are familiar with the labor liabilities, these are -- we are having grievances that have quite a bit of financial claims against this department and the city, so if we go through the package, the first item is a grievance sent by the union, it is a settlement by the rec and park back in the summer, i believe, this was due to problems to settle an eeoc lawsuit emanating from the rangers trailer of overtime, the document behind that is the overtime report, we ask you to take a close look, especially the labor representatives, we're informing you that our contract provides mandatory, that it must be distributed evenly, equally to all employees . do representatives have the same limit as evils -- individuals on the public comment? >> that is a warning. >> thank

really glad that the union brought up the issue of operator rest rooms and because even under prop k, the money that was ear marked for operator rest room thises is a serious issue in the city that the operators needs to have the ability to go to a rest room at the end of the line or somewhere, safely, and in a dignitied, way and we see the buses double parked, and the issues with the operator rest rooms that the mta and even before it was just mun i has had decade long engagement process and it is difficult to find in the neighbor as to where to locate these facilities, whether it is the end of the line or other places there is always an issue with that as a recall and this was a long time ago, we started with 14 locations city wide and then the number, as the muni representatives engaged the neighborhoods and worked through the issues and so on, shrink to about 7 or so and we were posed to fund whatever was available but the difficulty was essentially dealing with local acceptance of those. we now on the prop k can fund the rest rooms under the facilities line item and it would dep

overcompensation of food trucks downtown in union square and fisherman's wharf. when we got involved in the process one thing i quickly realized that we have parts of the city that are effectively o limits to food trucks. for example, this piece of legislation was taken up by you and recommended by the commission months ago if a college or hospital campus happens to be in a residentially-zoned area you are not allowed to put a food truck within that campus, even if it's a large campus. it makes no sense whatsoever. we have legislation that the board of supervisors adopted a number of year end ago putting a large buffer zone around all public middle schools and public high schools. the purpose of that buffer was to protect the school lunch program, so that kids aren't at least easily leaving [kp-eus/] to go to food trucks and also at the time the food trucks were not always necessarily the highest quality and healthfulness of food. there is also an equity concern that kids with more means would be more likely to leave campus. however, 1500' is three city blocks. it's a lot and what it does i
